christmas is coming up, in just 6 days, so i bet a ton of you are thinking about it already. what to wear, how to do your makeup, etc. this tip will show you six fun & easy ideas for christmas nails. 

note ; lots of these are very simple & even a bit repetitive. all of them use red nail polish, so make sure you have some (:

another note ; you CAN do a base coat and / or top coat for any of these if you want to, but i will not include these in the tip.

O1. CANDY CANE STRiPED NAiLS (top right photo) ♥

you will need ;

* red nail polish
* white nail polish with thin brush / white nail art pen (inglot does good ones, bottom right photo) 
* silver / gold glitter (optional) 

how to ;

first, paint your nails with the red nail polish. one or two coats, depending on the thickness of the nail polish. if you are using glitter, wait a few seconds, & then sprinkle some glitter onto your nails. when the nail polish dries, shake the remaining glitter off & wipe excess glitter away gently with a cotton bud. then wait till your nails are COMPLETELY dry, and paint diagonal stripes with the white polish / nail art pen as shown. if you are using a thin nail polish brush, you can get a piece of paper, & paint the stripes overlapping the edge of that, so you have a straight line. wait for it to dry, & done!

O2. CHRiSTMAS STRiPED NAiLS (top left photo) ♥

you will need ; 

* white nail polish
* red nail polish with thin brush / red nail art pen
* green nail polish with thin brush / green nail art pen

hot to ;

this is basically the same as the previous one, but with three colours. start off with painting your nails all white. then, wait for them to dry COMPLETELY & do either red or green stripes diagonally, like in the photo, but leave space for another stripe in between the two. then wait for that to dry & do the third colour in the space that you left. wait for it to dry & done!

O3. SANTA NAiLS (bottom left photo) ♥

you will need ;
 
* red nail polish
* white nail polish
* black nail polish with thin brush / black nail art pen
* gold nail art pen 

how to ;

paint your nails as usual with the red nail polish. then, as you wait for them to dry COMPLETELY, pick which finger you would like the santa to be on. on the photo they suggest the ring finger. or you can do it on all fingers. once the nail polish is dry, paint a stripe with the white polish down the middle of your chosen finger / all fingers, but make sure to leave some red on the outside.wait for that to dry. then, paint a thin horizontal stripe with the black nail polish with thin brush / black nail art pen. wait for it to dry. now, the last step is harder, so you have to use a nail art pen unless you're really precise. paint a small square (as shown on the photo) with the gold nail polish, where the white & black stripes cross. try to leave a small gap in the middle, so it doesn't flow together. wait for it to dry & you are done! 

O4. SNOWFLAKE NAiLS (not shown on any photo) ♥

you will need ; 

* red nail polish
* silver nail art pen
* silver glitter (optional) 

this is simple. paint all nails with the red nail polish as usual. then, once the red dries COMPLETELY, try to paint the symbol * with the silver nail art pen. an easy way of doing this is painting a vertical line, then painting a horizontal one in the middle, & then splitting the quarters you have into eighths. wait for it to dry & done! if you want to, apply glitter in the same way as in O1. while the red nail polish is drying.

O5. FRENCH MANiCURE GLiTTER NAiLS (not shown on any photo)

you will need ;

* red nail polish
* silver / gold glitter
* a top coat / clear nail polish

how to ;

as in every design in this tip, paint your nails with the red nail polish. once it dries COMPLETELY (this is VERY important that it is perfectly dry), with your clear nail polish / top coat, paint a kind of curved stripe across the top of your nail, like in a french manicure. wait a few seconds, & sprinkle your glitter on top. when it dries, shake the glitter off & remove any excess glitter with a cotton bud. done! this is a new take on the classic french manicure (: 

O6. CANDY CANE NAiLS (not shown on any photo) ♥

you will need ;

* red nail polish
* silver nail art pen 

how to ; 

paint your nails with the red nail polish as before. wait for the nail polish to dry COMPLETELY. then, take your silver nail art pen & try to paint the shape of a candy cane on your nail. it's basically a straight line with a curve at the end. wait for it to dry & done!

hope you enjoyed thise six nail designs. they were all very easy, & you could have done it without this tip, but i hope i at least gave you some ideas. the last three were invented by me (: well someone probably already did them, but i didn't know about it, or use any sources. 

MERRY CHRiSTMAS ♥ kisses, julia @ summer-kisses xxxx
